French is good, but you won't find Northerns, just ski's. So if your looking for them, thats the place to be. Mazaska, Kelly/Dudley/Roberds/Shields all have good pike in them.

Cedar (Rice Co.) has pike. Just toss a spinnerbait to the weedline and start cranking. You may have to experiment with colors a little but you should catch them once you determine what color they want.

i've caught northerns on french while using buck tails several times. i think some of the other lakes would be a better bet thou. as we get into fall; a spinner bait around broken weeds can be a great way to catch fish.

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
